Meet Our Team
Senior Pastor Darwin Dunten and his wife Polly are from the Fort Wayne, Indiana/ Toledo, Ohio area. They have three children and two grandchildren. Two of their children are serving overseas with the United States military. One daughter lives in Bryan, Ohio.
Pastor Darwin is a firm believer that the church must be relevant, worshipful, and fun. He also knows that a Christian must be continually growing in his or her walk with Christ. Therefore, those who are attending Mt. Tabor will be given opportunity to become stronger in their relationship with Christ.
Pastor Darwin graduated from Fort Wayne Bible College with a bachelors in Christian counseling. He received his Masters in Christian Ministries degree from Huntington University. He has continued his education and has an MDiv. equivalent recognition from Winebrenner Theological Seminary. Darwin has served on national denominational boards and served as the cluster leader (supt.) of local pastor and churches. His experience also includes hospital chaplaincy and the Hancock county Ohio administrative chaplain for the sheriffs department.
Darwin and Polly love to travel. “Ms Polly” loves children and has a strong desire to share Jesus with the younger generation.
Youth Pastor Kyle Stoker and his wife Rachel are both from the local area. He answered the call on his life and became the Youth Pastor at Mt. Tabor in October 2014. Pastor Kyle serves the youth of the area by teaching them biblical principles while equipping them for everyday life.
Kyles previous work experience in the food industry, retail and most recently the IT field allows him to connect with our youth and to use his spiritual gifts of Pastoring and Teaching to help them with a spectrum of problems that the youth deal with today.
His goal is to enable the youth to become leaders within the body and to also become leaders outside of the Church. Pastor Kyle not only teaches the youth but also makes sure they are able to have a “Rock Solid” foundation so once they graduate the youth group and go into the world they are prepared.
Kyle received his pastoral credentials within the Churches of God Conference in October of 2014 and continues to study at Winebrenner Theological Seminary in Findlay, OH. In his free time Pastor Kyle enjoys being outdoors and spending time with friends and family.
